Going off the (cable) grid

So tonight Adam and I messed around with the new antenna, we disconnected the Charter Cable connection and hooked the antenna up in its place. Tivo and Adam’s new TV recognized several digital signals. Olde TVs without digital tuners (the one in my bedroom, and the one in Adam’s livingroom) will need digital tuner boxes, but with Tivo working with the antenna, we are pretty much ready to pull the plug on cable, saving ~ $130 a month.

We’ll have to find alternate sources for some channels like cartoon network and sci-fi channel, but for the most part we should be covered.

For now the antenna is in the spare room upstairs, it might not even need to go on the roof. Could always put it up there at some future point though, I have the pole and stuff to mount it.
